Re: Good gaming card compatability in Ubuntu
I have the Nvidia 8500GT 512mb card. Cost me about £40.
Pretty good card, although it depends on what you want to play.
I'm sure that most cards will work.
The 8800GT is a pretty awesome card, but the 9600GT is over rated so I've heard. Both will work with Ubuntu.
It seems also that most cards from the 8 series up are supported.
Have a look on the Nvidia drivers site and see if they allow you to download them.
When you get your card, I recommend using Envy to install it.
